Kobold Goes One More

Posted In Articles, Front Page | 8 comments

Some of you may be familiar with the time-honored tradition of “going to 11.” KQ is right there with its latest issue, because Kobold Quarterly #11 is loaded with things that go right up to the edge, and then one more.

Don’t believe me? Here’s a sampling of the just-a-little-more philosophy at work:

   1) An awesome Ecology of the Vampire….
   2) ….plus a beautiful map of Morgau & Doresh
   3) Four new PC Races like the Minotaur and Bugbear
   4) ….plus a free PC race right here in the Monday Monster series.
   5) Wicked Fantasy gives you the 3E/OGL Dwarves —
   6) …and the 4th Edition version of the article as well.
   7) A new Pathfinder core class, the Spell-less Ranger….
   8) And a customized character sheet for it, free in the PDF version — and likely posted to the site this week.
   9) Bringing the Wish spell into 4th Edition, and ….
   10) Paizo intern Hank Woon shows you how to torture PCs. Seriously.
   11) Plus Lycanthrope PCs in 3E/OGL, Madness rules for D&D, the Philosopher’s Stone, game advice from Robin Laws and Christopher Perkins, an ENTIRE UNDERDARK CITY, argggh, there just isn’t room for it! IT GOES TO ELEVEN!

We’ve taken it over the top, just for starters. The issue is now available for subscribers to download from the KQ Store in the usual way (just log in, click “My Account” and then View the subscription).

Because it goes one more, you see.

  4. It’s a great article; the query seemed impossible, but I was extremely impressed with the way he broke it down into 4E crunch.

    And I think it might be a first-time author, so there ya go.

  5. The massacre mace is hands down the awesomest thing to happen to grimlocks since the Dragon ecology article, and made all the more awesome for its simplicity.

  6. Sultan, I think that weapon article is pure DM gold! Glad you like it.

  7. Loving the art direction. I think the trend of going with heavier graphic black and white illustrations in the interior of the magazine is really beginning to evoke a “Kobold Quarterly” style.

    Two Examples:

    Ben Hodson’s richly detailed and beautifully inked illustrations are so much fun. I like the image of the “Shadowfur Hunter”. It really triggers the mood and feel of the character but doesn’t lock it down to the point where I can’t imagine the character outside of the illustration.

    The use of quirky odd, and sometimes nearly surreal, images of Olaus Magnus cause my neurons to fire. The combination of the Olaus print and the title “Wishing Well” by Garrett Baumgartner sucked me right in.

    Keep up the good work!
